The food is incredible. I had the buffalo ribeye. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and melted in my mouth. My wife had a strip steak that was equally amazing
One member of our party is vegan.the waiter and chef spoke with her and made suggestions that she thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back. After all, my wife and I got married on Armani's patio.

Four of us were to dinner on Saturday, Jan 7 both couples celebrating a 50th weddiing anniversary. The service was outstanding and the food delicious. They remembered our anniversery and provided a champagne toast, appetizer, and dessert to help us celebrate. Very nice gesture. We will certainly be back for other special occasions. Thank You!

Went to Armani's with wife and friends to celebrate our wedding anniversary. When booking the event on open table, I had specified that we were celebrating an anniversary.
We arrived early to catch the sunset and experienced good service in the lounge. With about an hour to go before our reservation, I asked the hostess to try to get us seated early, as the dining area was sparsely populated on the holiday weekend. However, we were made to wait until exactly the time of our reservation, despite continuously empty tables in the dining area.
Our food server did a good job, however, I was surprised that nobody in the restaurant made any mention of the anniversary. If I was running a high end restaurant I would be sure that special occasions were acknowledged by the staff.
The food was good in general, however, for the price of the evening, I would have expected to be wowed.

We celebrate our anniversary here every year and love it every time. We had a couple of mix-ups with the service this time, but our experience was still very good. Armani's always feels special and provides an indulgent, delicious meal in a beautiful and relaxing environment.

We wanted the Bison. We had bison at other restaurants that was better. My husband didn't tell me till we got in the car that his was served cold. This you couldn't control unless you requested people didn't use their cell phones, however 3 people next to us each had their cell phone on the whole time taking numerous pictures and the light of the cell phone distracted us. Hindered our view. Also we had the coffee and it wasn't very good. However the wait staff was attentive and excellent.

We were greeted by a lovely hostess, who thought we might enjoy a table overlooking the city, and she was absolutely correct! The lights were spectacular and we were sort of nestled into a nice cozy corner of the room. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. My husband got the salmon and I got the chicken with asparagus, both were perfect, and I had enough to share with him. Thank you Armani's for making our Chritmas Eve, a night to remember !

We went to this restaurant for Christmas Eve. We had been there more than a half dozen times for both personal and business dinners, plus had held our daughter's wedding reception there. The views are spectacular, particularly at sunset, as there is a balcony where you can either watch or take pics of the sunset. The food is always outstanding, as is the service.
This particular visit, we did not have good service at all, perhaps due to it being a holiday. We arrived a few minutes early and wanted to take our holiday picture out on the balcony and the reception desk told us that she would seat us, then after about 5 minutes they hadn't done so, so we went ahead and went outside to take the pic before the sun went down. She then came out and told us that our table was ready, but we hadn't yet taken the picture. She seemed a bit miffed. Our dinner service was significantly slower than normal. For a 545p reservation we were served bread finally at 645pm. Many more snafus, that we don't need to enumerate.
We shared that with the manager and there was a small adjustment to the bill.

Very sad to see anti pasta bar change. Less choices and way to much seafood options and too few vegetables options.
We took two "first time " people there and had talked it up so much ( antipasto bar, desserts , service) and they were totally turned off as was I. I'm certain they will not be return guests. My husband and I have spent many wonderful dinners at Armani's and was very disappointing and sad.
Service was less than stellar. . Had to ask several times for water refill.

We have been going to Armani's that last 3 years for our anniversary...It is our new special occasion restaurant....great service, great food, great atmosphere!....special thanks to our outstanding waiter Maria...she is the best!

The quantities were small for the price. In last year, all the dishes have risen an average of 10 dollars and are smaller . The antipasto selection is very limited comparing with a year ago. The antipasto used to be one of my favorite plates because it had a great variety of items such as calamary, octopus, now is reduced to dry.meats and cheese. Now is 28 very small plate before was 19 lots of diverse items. The entres were average for this type of restaurant since each entree was 45. My salmon had a fishy flavour and was nothing especial. The piece salmon was small for being 42. My significant other had sword fish 45 plate was good. We order two glasses of wine for 20 each and what a ripped off the portion of the wine was less lik 4 oz wich.is disturbing for this price.
I believe Armanis has became a restaurat for only profit making. This restaurant has gone too far with prices for quality and quantity of its foods and wines. I am sad because I have been going to this restaurant for ten years but now this was my last time that I will ever go there. Prices do not match the good quality. Please it is time for your chef, owner, managers to understand the need to something about it.

My girlfriend had always been "dropping hints" to take her to "An Armani Dinner". I thought she wanted me to where an Armani suit to dinner. When I finally discovered Armani's was an actual restaurant, I made a reservation via Open Table for her upcoming Birthday.
Armani’s was simply perfect and flew by all expectations we created in our minds prior to our experience. It was as if a red carpet had been rolled out for us; from our arrival all the way through our departure. My favorite part was when we were leaving I made a point to thank the manager on duty, Steve, for a fabulous experience. I wanted him to be aware of the fantastic service and attention to detail we received from the entire Armani staff. I shared that we were celebrating my girlfriends birthday and he immediately turned to the bartender and said, "did you put away the St. Germain’s?". Although the bartender had put it way for the night, not even a minute later he placed two fancy glasses filled with the delightful elderflower liqueur on the bar for us to enjoy.
We took our nightcap to the patio where we enjoyed our drinks, took in the panoramic view of the Tampa Bay and reflected on our first Armani’s experience.
Thank you Steve and everyone at Armani's for a truly wonderful experience!
See you next time. Maybe next time I'll wear an Armani.
Tony & Sarah
And thank you Open Table for making it very simple to reserve a table!

Service and view are impeccable. The food lacks anything special. Flavor combinations- I had the Lobster and Lamb chef's special- were unrefined and missing any remarkable palette. My table mate's Swordfish was the same way. It is one of the most expensive restaurants in the area. I would expect the food to be stellar.

Have been going to Armani's for over 20 years for special occasions, this time was the first disappointment. We were there last December for our anniversary and had the best veal Marsala which was pounded thin and undoubtedly the best i ever had. This time 3 people in our party ordered the veal on my recommendation. It was thick, not hot and just so so. Very disappointed in the "new" menu, my bolagnase was very good except the pasta was over cooked. All in all not happy for what we expected and had experienced in the past.

Went to Armani's for our wedding anniversary. We arrived and waiting about 7-10 minutes for a hostess. Their were 3 other parties in front of us so my husband and I just got out of line and went to the bar for a drink. The tables were not full so not sure where the hostess was. Overall the food was good but it wasn't so awesome that we would come more often. The prices were higher then they should be. We have no problem paying premium + for an epic meal but I didn't think anything was so great that would make us really wish to go back again and again. The view is beautiful though.

Although the view is unbeatable and the server was pleasant and brought my wife two "free" scoops of ice cream for her birthday, her steak was full of grizzle that she quite eating it. The noise level was horrible with a group of six young women approximately ten yards away laughing extremely loud. There were two couples closer to them than us and if I had been one of those two parties I would have complained, but my wife told me to live with the noise. Far over priced for the meal and environment that we experienced, so won't be back.

It was outstanding. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. The food was delicious, view was beautiful. It was a perfect night my glass was never empty someone was always there to fill it before it got to the bottom. Everyone was so polite. The music was a sort of classical blend and the lighting is dim it is very romantic, but also business friendly

Literally, the worst meal I have had in a very long time. The lobster bisque was brown like gravy and lukewarm. My wife's Osso Bucco was tough/chewy and had a strange flavor. My Ribeye steak was tough and absolutely flavorless. This was our 26th wedding anniversary and we were extremely disappointed. This will be our last visit.

It had been 25 years since our last dining experience with Armani's. Previous experiences were superb and very little has changed...Stellar service, cuisine, opulence and views just as breathtaking as we remember. Armani's is truly where you go to have dining experience. If only they could have been relocated with us. Armani's...It's all great and you will not be disappointed!

Our waiter was rude and not attentive. All four people in our party were very disappointed in our meal s. Risotto was dry and not creamy, lukewarm as well. Salmon was under cooked. Carbonara was ok, cool also. Bolignese was fair. Everything came out lukewarm.
View is fabulous, everything else was sub par. My first bad food and service experience in Tampa.

What a lovely place for an anniversary dinner! We arrived early in order to have drink while watching the sun set. Our table in the bar overlooked Tampa Bay from the 14th floor. We watched the birds fish and a lone kayaker navigate the inshore waters. As the sunset and the lights came up on the causeway, it was beautiful and romantic. A piano player arrived and began tickling the keys. We had a very accommodating waitress in the bar.
After our drinks, we claimed out dinner reservations and sat on the airport side, overlooking the runway and the landing planes at TIA . Every dish was complex and thoroughly delicious. My particular favorites were their take on caprese salad and the rock shrimp carbonara. Armani's version of the caprese salad (called burrata) was, frankly, every bit as delicious as the caprese salad I had in a cooking school in Florence, Italy. As for the carbonara, it is not the drowned in cream version seen in many of the chain Italian restaurants here in Florida. How wonderful and complex it was, and the seafood was so delicately balanced by the absolutely al dente spaghetti.
The only faux pas of the evening was the restaurant's failure to acknowledge our anniversary, which was noted at the time of the reservation. As from that, it was truly a meal to remember!
